Birmingham Alabama Wrongful Death Attorneys Farris, Riley & Pitt

Birmingham Alabama Wrongful Death Lawsuits

A Wrongful Death claim is a lawsuit pursued when someone is killed as a result of another person’s wrongful conduct.

The Wrongful Death Statute in Alabama is unique compared to other states in that it only allows for punitive damages (money paid to punish the wrongdoer) and does not allow for compensatory damages (money paid to a person as compensation for their loss).

When a loved one dies from a traumatic and unexpected accident, family members are often left stunned, hopeless, angry and unsure of where to turn. Often times, the next of kin is hesitant to contact a lawyer, but the time immediately following a tragedy can be crucial to ensure the responsible party is held accountable for their wrongdoings. For example, photographs of the scene need to be taken and eyewitnesses need to be contacted.
